A statement from University of Nebraska System President Ted Carter on the retirement of University of Nebraska-Lincoln Chancellor Ronnie Green:
"Ronnie and Jane Green have a deep love for the University of Nebraska and the students, faculty, staff and Nebraskans who are part of this special extended family. We owe them a debt of gratitude for answering the call to serve UNL over the past 13 years. This is a well-earned decision for them and I am happy knowing they will soon get more time with each other and their growing family.
"The chancellorship of Nebraska’s flagship university is one of the most important leadership positions in our state. UNL is home to remarkable talent and is in a position to expand its impact even further on the workforce, economy and quality of life in Nebraska and beyond. We are fortunate that Chancellor Green has given us a runway that will give us time to chart the path forward and ensure a smooth transition of leadership. I intend to conduct a rigorous national search, informed by diverse stakeholder feedback, to identify UNL’s next leader. That search will begin in earnest after the New Year, and we will communicate next steps as the process gets underway."
